How to be a Complete Bastard © 1987 Virgin Games.

Ade has successfully gate-crashed a yuppie party on the posh side of town, and to succeed as "The Complete Bastard" he must incapacitate all the guests by the end of the party and light up each letter in the phrase "COMPLETE-BASTARD". He must also build up as many "Bastard Points" as he can by extremely offensive behaviour.

Ade must thoroughly search the furnishings and fittings (as any proper bastard would) and find objects that will enable him to play thoroughly aggravating jokes on the guests and generally create havoc. Ade's antics are viewed through a split-level screen and no opportunity to be a bastard should be missed in this truly illegitimate arcade game.
